Rahul Sangole shared his ArduStat – Web Controlled Wireless Arduino Based Thermostat, featuring Adafruit CC3000:
I finished my first functional Arduino project last month. It’s a typical first baby-steps ‘Hello World’ project in the Arduino world. A web-controlled thermostat.
- Adafruit CC3000 WiFi Breakout Board
- Arduino Uno R3
- Generic Hobby Servo Motor
- 1 10k Resister
- 1 Paperclip
- 1 DHT11 Temperature Humidity Sensor
Since I have a functioning Honeywell T87 thermostat (And, the fact that I currently rent the house, and do not wish to make any major hardware changes), I decided to implement a removable hardware interface with the T87, instead of going down the path of a more elegant relay-based arduino solution….
Featured Adafruit Product!
Adafruit CC3000 WiFi Breakout with Onboard Ceramic Antenna: The CC3000 hits that sweet spot of usability, price and capability. It uses SPI for communication (not UART!) so you can push data as fast as you want or as slow as you want. It has a proper interrupt system with IRQ pin so you can have asynchronous connections. It supports 802.11b/g, open/WEP/WPA/WPA2 security, TKIP & AES. A built in TCP/IP stack with a “BSD socket” interface. TCP and UDP in both client and server mode, up to 4 concurrent sockets. It does not support “AP” mode, it can connect to an access point but it cannot be an access point. (read more)
